Credits: 7,5. Grading scale: TH. Cycle: A (Second Cycle). Main field: Technology. Language of instruction: The course will be given in English on demand. Optional for: M4. Course coordinator: Professor Gunnar Bolmsjö,, Machine Design. Prerequisites: FMAA01/FMAA05 Calculus in One Variable, FMA420 Linear Algebra, FMA430 Calculus in Several Variables, MMT045 Flexible Manufacturing Systems and EDA011 Programming, First Course or EDA501 Programming, First Course. The course might be cancelled if the number of applicants is less than 16. Assessment: Each student will present results from project work as a final report, and models and simulations in connections to defined project tasks. These are in general made in groups of two students or individual. The result from the final report is graded based on the different sub tasks made. Home page:

The aim of the course is to provide knowledge in modelling, simulation and analysis of industrial production systems and how the information is managed with respect to the digital representation with respect to the product realization process. Theory and methodology is given to support the project tasks and how software tools are used from an engineering perspective in order to design solutions to produce effective industrial production systems.
